One of the original "OG" Mustang Outlaw cars has recently hit the market, project "Mondo Stocker” from 5.0 Mustang & Fast Fords magazine is now for sale in the Detroit area. This 1988 Mustang is possibly one of the fastest Ford magazine project cars ever built. Owned by Dr. Jamie Meyer, it's held the distinction of being the first magazine project car in the 8-second zone.

For a little history on the car, Jamie purchased the Mustang as the third owner in 1992. It was an original 5.0-liter/T-5 car and has never been used as a daily driver. By 1996, the Mondo Stocker was running mid-11s with a cam/nitrous/slicks combination.

Shortly after the initial modifications, Jamie started writing for a number of Ford publications and the car became a full-time 5.0 Mustang magazine project build. The original goal of the car was to see how far 5.0 Magazine could push a stock bottom end. It was equipped with a J-trim Vortech, Performance Automatic C-4, and a lot of the “race car gear” that it still wears today.

After wearing out the stock 302, phase two of Project Mondo Stocker’s history came with a 347 stroker motor build, topped off with Canfield cylinder heads and a TFS R intake manifold. It also has a one-off ASSC-grind solid roller camshaft that allows the engine to make power past 8000 rpm at over 35 psi.

The car was campaigned in 2000 at the NMRA Orlando, Reynolds, and Columbus events by Carlo Catalanotto. Project Mondo Stocker set the world record as the first magazine project car in the 8-second zone at the Reynolds, GA event and still holds the title as the fastest Ford magazine project car ever built. In its heyday, it appeared in multiple Ford publications, from 1996 through 2000. Coverage included the project car build and competition in NMRA Super Street Outlaw. .

Along the way, the car garnered a number of sponsorships including Ford Racing, Vortech Superchargers, PA Transmissions, ASSC Racing, TRZ Motorsports, Fox Lake, Canfield, Eagle, etc.

Since mid-2000, the Mustang has lived the life of a shelved racecar, always garaged, always cared for – never stripped of parts or shown any disrespect or malice. Project Mondo Stocker has always been treated as a special member of the Meyer family. It has been Jamie's pride and joy for over 15 years.
